Goa-born, Mumbai-based DJ and actress DJ Jenny D has posed in the nude for a hard-hitting campaign supporting reservation or aarakshan for women promoted by an NGO Citizens Action Forum.
The Mumbai-based NGO Citizens Action Forum has launched an awareness campaign on
the occasion of Independence Day titled Are Women in India really Independent? A special poster and print shoot was part of the campaign which was shot by Bollywood and fashion photographer Vickky Idnaani. The campaign
focuses on creating more jobs for women in areas like judiciary, local-self government and allied areas.
Says DJ Jenny D, “We demand more jobs for women particularly in villages and smaller towns. Jobs for women in important positions of government, judiciary, police, local self government and financial institutions will reduce corruption in India and crimes against women will come down drastically. Women should have the freedom to choose their partner, choose the job or profession they want to or feel inclined to and even choose their dress code or the outfits they want to wear. Women should be at par with men not just in the cities, but also in the smallest and remotest villages and small towns of India. On Independence Day after 64 years of independence, women are still raped every day in India. Teenage girls are forced into
marriages that they are against.”
When asked about the nude shoot, DJ Jenny D said, “The photograph is very artistically shot and is very aesthetic and glamorous. It is not vulgar at all.” TOI
